Wrestling Falls Short against No. 10 Boise State

Feb. 15, 2009

Corvallis, Ore. Senior Heinrich Barnes (Pretoria, South Africa) completed a perfect sweep of all Pac-10 duals on Sunday afternoon against No. 10 Boise State, but the Oregon State wrestling team fell short against the No. 10 Boise State Broncos, 25-9, on Sunday afternoon.


We knew there we some matches we had to win, like 165 and 174,” head coach Jim Zalesky said. “We came out to slow at 165 and 174; they were just tough matches, and we couldnt get off the bottom. You have to win the tough ones because if you dont win the tough situations, you won’t win the matches you need to win.


Barnes earned the first win of the day for the Beavers in a 7-4 decision over No. 17 Jason Chamberlain at 149 pounds. Barnes scored six of the points all on takedowns, holding Chamberlain only to escapes, while adding a point for 1:25 of riding time.


Redshirt freshman Clayton Jack (Vacaville, Calif.) improved to 13-4 in duals, improving his winning streak to seven matches, after shutting out Sam Zylstra at heavyweight. Jack recorded a takedown early before scoring a pair of points on stalling warnings. He scored the final point on an escape, finishing in a score of 5-0.


Wrapping up the meet, redshirt freshman Kelly Kubec (Lake Stevens, Wash.) tallied the third win for the Beavers at 133 pounds. Kubec defeated Allen Bartelli, 3-1, scoring on a stalling point and an escape before picking up an extra point for the 1:45 of riding time. Kubec finishes with a 14-4 dual meet record, winning his last three matches.


At 174 pounds, 13th ranked senior Kyle Bressler (Federal Way, Wash.) nearly pulled an upset against No. 12 Nate Lee, forcing the match into overtime before falling 3-4. And redshirt freshman Chad Hanke (Dayton, Ore.) held No. 5 Brent Chriswell to only four points at 197 pounds but came up just short, 1-4.


Oregon State finishes 10-8, 6-3 Pac-10 in duals, while the Broncos finish 16-3, 7-0 Pac-10.
